What do you do about toddlers who can climb out of their cribs?
Wondering about an alternative to a crib tent since I believe they were recalled? Our 2.5 year-old is probably going to start climbing out and he is not mature enough to handle a toddler bed!
Unfortunately there isn’t a great alternative except that by 2 1/2 most kids really CAN learn from some more behavioral techniques. First, lets’ hope he doesn’t jump! Does his crib have a high side you can turn out? Can you put him in sleep sack to help reduce his flexibility in getting a leg up and over? make sure mattress is lowered all the way of course, and sometimes you can even find a thinner mattress to give you an extra inch or two. If he’s a monkey and climbing is inevitable, you’ll handle that when the time comes. But, again the good news is he probably can learn from a whole behavioral intervention when the time comes!
